Is the warning shot story growing legs? It's got 4 mentions today, USA Today, Free Market News Network, Asheville Citizen-Times and the original Rocky Mountain News story.
Check this link to see if the number increases.
Only the USA Today story mentions a rebuttal from NORFED and the Liberty Dollar. In fact, not even the home site for the Liberty Dollar, libertydollar.org, has a mention of the tempest in a teapot that the mint announcement seems to have stirred up. I had to go to a third party site to read the entire press release.
They seem to have addressed all the points, at least.
